SUB: AGITATION PROGRAMME FROM 15.09.2014 to 20.09.2014.
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
It has been decided by Government Employees National Confederation that all the constituent Federations of GENC will observe an Agitation Programme throughout the country from 15.09.2014 to 20.09.2014 to remove the ceiling of Rs. 3500/- per mensem under the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 and Productivity Linked Bonus Scheme. You are aware that Section
12 of the Payment of Bonus Act has been amended by Act 45 of 2007 (w.e.f. 01.04.2006) regarding calculation of bonus with respect to certain employees which states as under:-
“Where the salary or wage of an employee exceeds three thousand and five hundred rupees per mensem, the bonus payable to such employee under Section 10 or, as the case may be, under Section 11, shall be calculated as if his salary or wage were three thousand and five hundreds rupees per mensem.”
Meanwhile, Central Government accepted the recommendations of 06th CPC with effect from 01.01.2006 and fixed the minimum basic pay plus grade pay as Rs. 5200 + 1800 = 7000.
Therefore 28,06,369 Group ‘C’ (Non Gazetted) and 1,13,477 Group ‘B’ (Non Gazetted) total thirty lakh approx. Central Government employees are getting the bonus @ Rs. 3500/- per mensem under the Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 or Productivity Linked Bonus whereas none of them is drawing wages less than Rs. 7000/- per mensem excluding other allowances which has beencausing discontentment amongst the employees.
In this agitation programme Gate Meetings, Demonstration at Main Gate, Rallies, Wearing Black Badges and may include other peaceful methods decided at your levels will be organized as per feasibility. This demand week will be concluded with the giving Memorandum to respective Head of Department on last working day (20.09.2014) addressed to Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and copy to the Minister of Labour & Employment, Govt of India.We hope for full support and co-operation to give a great success to this programme.
